Abstract

The high incidence of cardiovascular disease and the significant improvement in therapeutic options available in acute myocardial infarction have made risk stratification of patients following myocardial infarction an issue of major importance. In this regard, patency of the infarct related vessel has been of specific interest. Early patency of the infarct related vessel has proven prognostic impact on long-term outcome. Randomized trials addressing the prognostic impact of revascularization of an occluded infarct related vessel are pending. A number of non-randomized studies suggest a symptomatic and prognostic benefit in patients with persistent ischaemia, hibernating myocardium, and impaired left ventricular function. In these, coronaryangiography is essential. Risk stratification of patients after myocardial infarction is primarily based on patency of the infarct-related artery, the extent of coronary artery disease, and residual left ventricular function.
